|update time:2023-05-23 08:47:10
As a global leader in smart home cleaning appliances, Neakasa has recently launched its latest innovation, the Neakasa NoMo N3 – a self-emptying 3-in-1 robot vacuum that has taken the market by storm. Packed with advanced features such as powerful suction capabilities, LIDAR Navigation, and SLAM technology, the Neakasa NoMo N3 is truly a next-gen cleaning companion that can revolutionize your home cleaning routine.
As a smart home enthusiast, I was intrigued by the advanced features and capabilities of the NoMo N3 and decided to put it to the test in my own home. Here is my detailed review of the Neakasa NoMo N3. So, let’s check out the modes we care about, such as suction power, fall prevention function, and room scanning function.
This is the cardboard box of “Neakasa Nomo N3” that arrived this time. This cardboard was bigger than I thought.
Here is the package of “Neakasa Nomo N3”, so let’s set it up according to this procedure.
The packing of “Neakasa Nomo N3” is solid as shown in the figure above, so I was relieved.
The accessories for this product are as follows.
Design and Build Quality
The first is the front of the main unit. This is exactly the design of a robot vacuum cleaner, and the simple black-and-white color scheme makes it easy to match with any home.
There is a protrusion for the laser in the center of the top surface, and there is a power supply and a button for manually returning to the charging station at the bottom of the center.
Next is the back of the main unit. There is a tank on the front side that stores garbage and water for wiping. The structure around here is almost the same as the conventional robot vacuum cleaner in terms of appearance.
Next is the left and right sides of the main unit.
In addition to the holes for air supply and exhaust on the rear side, the logo “N3”, which is the model number of this product, is printed on the front side. Even though it’s just two simple letters, the font selection and color usage are good, so it looks good.
Next is the bottom of the main unit. This side also looks the same as a general robot vacuum cleaner. The side brush seems to be a type that attaches only one to the right front side.
It may be a coincidence, but in the past many models had one brush on each side, but recently it seems that the number of models with only one brush on one side has increased. It may be that it became possible to control the movement of the main body wisely enough to be satisfied with just one unit.
Next, I tried to remove the tank from the main body. As shown in the photo, the tank can be easily removed by hooking your finger and pulling it out.
Next, I opened the garbage collection part of the tank. Since the outside is a water tank for wiping, the garbage tank itself is inevitably smaller than products that do not have a wiping function.
However, since this product is equipped with an automatic garbage collection function, I think that it will not be a problem in actual use if it is accumulated on the charging station side every time cleaning is completed.
To the water wiping tank, water is supplied from the hole that appears when the blue cap on the left is removed.
Although it is a fine point, a cleaning brush is fitted on the left front side of the tank so that it can be easily removed and used quickly.
The scene where the brush is needed will be during the maintenance of the tank part, and I thought that the fact that it is hard to lose even a small part due to the inset structure is a very reasonable idea.
Next is the front of the charging station itself. When compared to other products, the robot vacuum cleaner itself had almost no distinctive features, but in contrast, the charging station side has a high level of design just by looking at it. increase.
Because there is a panel with a glossy black logo on the front side, and the rest of the body is matte white, so the black panel on the front looks more impressive.
Also, when it comes to charging stations for robot vacuum cleaners, there are many products that have an overall shape that draws an oval or semicircle. I think it’s finished in a cool and stylish way, coupled with the use of colors.
It is also a good impression that the height is suppressed.
Next, I opened the top cover of the charging station. When you open the top lid, there is a hole that is divided into two as shown in the photo, the right side of the photo is the trash bag that has been set, and the left side is the spare trash bag.
Charging stations inevitably take up a certain amount of space in the room, but I am happy to see that some measures have been taken to make effective use of them.
Next are the left and right sides of the charging station. There is a black oval part in common on the bottom front side, but it seems that the robot vacuum cleaner body is probably a sensor part for checking the position of the charging station.
Also, there is a large vent on the left side of the front. Since it is an essential part to suck up the dust that has accumulated on the robot vacuum cleaner side, at least consideration should be given to avoid placing unnecessary items on this side.
*In addition, the instruction manual states that it is necessary not to place anything within a certain distance on both the left and right sides.
Next is the back of the charging station. Only the power cable is located on this side. In addition, it can be said that it is a nice consideration that it has a structure that allows you to wind up the extra power cable.
Finally, here’s a view from the bottom side of the charging station. The bottom has anti-slip and anti-scratch parts on both the left and right sides.
Also, you can see the hole in the center of the photo for garbage collection, and when the robot cleaner returns to the charging station, this hole will suck up the garbage accumulated in the tank of the robot cleaner.
First of all, since we will also try wiping with water this time, after supplying water to the tank, we will attach this part for wiping to the main body.
The parts for wiping the water itself are very easy to install, just slide them onto the outer part of the tank and you can fix them like this. After that, the setup of the robot vacuum cleaner is completed by setting the rotating brush in the part of the black part diagonally forward right (diagonally forward left in the photo).
This time, I set the robot vacuum cleaner and charging station like this.
You can see something that protrudes a little white from the front left side of the robot vacuum cleaner body, but this is a rotating brush. By rotating this brush appropriately during operation, it is possible to send dust on the floor to the vicinity of the center of the back of the robot vacuum cleaner and absorb it efficiently.
Next, while charging for a while, I proceeded with the setup of the smartphone app, and it was ready for use in this way with a simple operation step.
The app also supports Japanese, so I don’t think you’ll get stuck in the setup.
First, I placed the robot vacuum cleaner near the station and pressed the button to return to the station, but there were many obstacles around, and even though it was barely moving from the station, it was only for a moment. The rough shape of the room was mapped as shown on the right side of the photo between.
Such behavior is almost impossible for a robot vacuum cleaner without radar, but even compared to other radar-equipped robots, I got the impression that the mapping function works very fast and with high accuracy. rice field.
Next, before actually starting the cleaning, I opened various settings on the app.
First of all, on the left side of the photo, in addition to the settings related to the amount of water and suction power of a common mop, you can also adjust the volume of the voice guidance that is sometimes generated from the main unit, and the ON / OFF of the light mounted near the radar, which is unique to this product. There was also a point.
No matter how quiet the suction sound is, it is difficult to move it while you sleep if the announcement is played at a high volume or the light shines brightly, but such detailed consideration is also firmly done.
Also, on the setting screen on the right side of the photo, it was possible to perform more detailed control.
For example, there are “garbage collection management” that changes the frequency of collecting garbage accumulated in the robot vacuum cleaner body to the charging station, and “remote control” that completely controls the movement of the robot vacuum cleaner by yourself.
The only thing that was a little confusing was that the initial setting of the “voice pack” part was somehow “Italian”, and at first all the announcements from the robot vacuum cleaner were in Italian. However, of course, by switching to Japanese settings, all the voice guidance was also translated into Japanese, so I don’t think it’s a big problem.
Next, I finally pressed the “Start cleaning” button from the app and started cleaning. The robot vacuum comes out of the charging station with a solo and starts spinning.
After leaving the charging station, the robot vacuum cleaner began to move around the room and the corridor after showing a thoughtful look for a while.
This time, I tried moving it in a place where there is a void in the middle that draws the letter “R”, but it started to move in a straight line only once in an “R” shape, so for a moment it was “miscellaneous” I thought it was a good cleaning, and I misunderstood.
However, when I chased after it, it seems that I did not start cleaning, but first I went around the place I should clean and confirmed it.
In addition, during this lap, in places with steps like this, it showed movements like checking the length of the step many times, and it seemed that it was checking it especially carefully.
And here is a comparison of the app display before and after switching from the state of “Checking the room around” to “Cleaning mode”.
On the screen on the left, the room is displayed in light gray, but on the screen on the right, you can see that it is light blue. In other words, when the robot vacuum cleaner actually enters cleaning mode, it seems to be light blue like this.
On this screen, you can also see that the trajectory of the robot vacuum cleaner when it was circling before cleaning is drawn on the application. In the area where there are no steps at all, the trajectory is drawn as if it were a straight line that almost passes through. I know it’s getting a little complicated.
Next, the mode has actually switched and cleaning has started. In this way, under the desk, etc. will enter smoothly and clean.
In addition, although the surroundings are slightly dark due to the shadow of the desk, the robot vacuum cleaner’s body can be easily seen because the area near the radar in the center glows green.
As long as the room is as bright as when this photo was taken, I think it doesn’t matter which lights are turned on. If you happen to have a robot vacuum cleaner running, you may not even notice it is working.
Assuming such a scene, I think this light is a surprisingly useful function.
Next, I took a picture of the robot vacuum cleaner cleaning the straight corridor and the corridor after the robot vacuum cleaner passed. In this way, the place after the robot vacuum cleaner passed was firmly wiped with water, and the reflection peculiar to the water wipe was seen in the hallway.
Next, even in places where there are subtle obstacles like this, the robot vacuum cleaner stopped at the last minute without crashing into the obstacle and cleaned it well.
Products that do not have a radar, or products that do not have a very accurate radar, will almost always make a “thump” or “thump” when cleaning the edges and corners of a room, regardless of the size of the sound. They make physical contact so many times that the collision sound is audible.
However, did this product make a slight contact sound only once or twice during the ten minutes of operation? That’s about it, I was avoiding it exactly at the very limit of contact. There is no contact noise with walls, etc., and the suction noise is very quiet, so even if this product is running around the bed while you are sleeping, you will hardly notice it.
When the cleaning was finally finished, after the announcement of cleaning completion flowed, it automatically returned to the station and automatically collected garbage from the robot vacuum cleaner main body to the charging station side.
As expected, the automatic garbage collection makes a loud noise, so it is not recommended at night, but as mentioned earlier, you can temporarily turn off the garbage collection in the settings, so you can set it according to your preference and situation. It looks like it should be used properly.
Finally, it is a comparison of the trajectory of the robot vacuum cleaner at 1 minute after cleaning started and at the time of completion (14 minutes).
From this trajectory, I think you can read that they are cleaning carefully without leaving anything behind. Finally, this cleaning was done in the following three steps.
Until now, there have been products that can be set to “clean twice in one cleaning” for those who want to clean carefully, but there was no product that combined multiple patterns to clean so carefully. I think so.
I was able to feel the “evolution” unique to the new product.
Overall, the Neakasa Nomo N3 is a top-notch robot vacuum that offers powerful cleaning capabilities, advanced technology, and convenient features. The demerit is that the sound is a little loud, but that makes up for it with its high-level specs, such as its ability to suck dust, its ability to scrape it up, and its ability to automatically suck up dust into the dust box on the base side.
In addition, since popular functions such as the schedule function and setting of no-entry area are covered, it was a very easy-to-use robot vacuum cleaner.
For those who want to buy a new robot vacuum cleaner for a new life, as well as those who have already used a robot vacuum cleaner so far, but who remember compromising on its cleaning ability, I definitely recommend switching to this product.
